I love the bag designed for knitters,sure would keep my cats away from my yarn! I also think its great to go Green by using the Utility Tote instead of all the plastic bags from the store! I also love the Molded Cork Laptop Case:The Archetype, I just love the looks of it and you can tell it has to be safe!

The medium cafe bag please!!! Thank you :)

The Random Muse said...

As a chronic student, I am always on the lookout for new and better bags, and there are many fine examples which I am now longing for on this site. However, the item which sticks out is the vertical brain cell, the laptop case which is designed to hold my computer and fit in my backpack. I do not currently carry my computer to school because I do not feel that I can sufficiently protect it, but that would set my mind at ease.

By the way, having won one contest, am I still eligible to win others?

Lynn said...

I like so many of them. But my favorites are Swift, Utility tote and Western Flyer.

Sue Farrell said...

I really like the utility tote--the zippered compartment on the inside is such a plus. The colors are great--and its MADE IN AMERICA---I'm always looking to find something NOT made in China!

joannaonthelake said...

I too share your same passion for supporting products that are made in the grand old USA! I believe it is so important not only for our economy, but to help our neighbors, family, friends and acquaintances stay happily employed! Okay, down to business, my favorite Tom Bihn Bags are The Archetype because I have an apple laptop and this bag is so cool and unique looking with the molded cork! I also was very drawn to the Ego Messenger Bag because it is large enough to fit a lot of "stuff" but small enough to fit my small frame. I would love to try out the Small Cafe Bag because this is one I can use on a daily basis! It is perfect for my petite size. Thank you for offering such a fine giveaway and introducing use to Tom Bihn!

The Ego and The Id are my favorites, I think. I always have to take everything and then some when I go out and about with my kids, or anywhere. I like to be prepared for anything that I might need, and so having extra carrying space available for whatever I carry, my makeup, my camera (I have kids, I /have/ to have my camera!) extra batteries, books and toys for the kids...You get the picture, I am sure. :)
